Should You Pay off Your Student Debt?

You may be able to pay off your student debt. But should you?

Some politicians in the U.S. have proposed canceling some or all student debt. You might feel foolish if you worked and saved only to have other people get their debts paid for free.

A more prudent course of action in the meantime would be to continue to make minimal payments, making sure to avoid any penalties and fees.
